    I honestly wouldn't do either, but I would go with a wooded background over a body of water.

    Neither would be my first choice, but I would probably do wooded over water!

    Both would be lovely. Woodland seems like it'd be very peaceful, but considering we live on an island waterfront seems like a more natural choice for here...

    Woodland! We are getting married on a mountain by a waterfall so I guess I have a bit of both.

    Is it cheating that we have both? We are getting married in a national forest on a reservoir.

    I wouldn't' choose either but woodlands over the waterfront.

    Both but I prefer woodland.

    I tried so hard to find a beautiful forest for my ceremony but I live in an urban area and all the forests were too far away. My ceremony is in front of a lake so we鈥檙e doing waterfront but I absolutely would鈥檝e preferred woodland.

    Our reception is right on the lake! And we get to go out on a big party boat during cocktail hour

    I absolutely love both, but we chose waterfront! There is a path going between/under a bunch of trees though that I can鈥檛 wait to get photos walking, so maybe a little of both!

    Both are nice, but I'm totally a woodland girl.

    I would never do either for a wedding for a list of reasons, but I do love water so I'd pick that if I had to.

    We got the best of both worlds! We married under tall redwoods with a view of the lake in the background.

    Woodland 馃彅 it was manditory that we got married in the mountains surrounded by pine trees.

    Hmmm... I think there's a prettier waterfront than the one showed. Honestly, either are beautiful. And I'm doing neither.
